Yes I agree, I think that the corporate world is slowly waking up to the
reality that stable good quality software has to be free - I think many
companies are willing to pay us to make things happen, maybe without
the full commitment of relocating us across the world and making us
a full time employee of their company - if the program was serious
and the bounties serious, I'm quite sure that people will be watching
and even maintaining such a billboard so that things dont get out of

Like it was mentioned though, lots of things like this already exist just in
different infrastructure.
